Morning Announcements
Monday, October 7, 2019

Please stand for our morning prayer.

We remember that we are in the presence of God.

Let us pray together as a school community in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

I give praise to you, O Lord, creator and sustainer of the universe. Through your love, all that is comes to be and will be brought to fulfillment. Grant that I may trust in your loving care throughout the day, knowing that you have made me for yourself and for those with whom I spend this day. May all that I do, think, and say give glory to you and service to my neighbor.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Saint Stanislaus, pray for us.

Will everyone please join me as we recite together the Pledge of Allegiance.

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Please remain standing until the dress and grooming check have been completed.
